I just finished reading Mr. Farah’s introduction to this month’s Whstleblower – “Disinformation Age.”
What was of particular – and peculiar – interest to me was the info that media members covering the White House have to submit copies of their articles to government officials for approval before publication!
I am a retired investigative reporter for the St. Louis, Mo., Post-Dispatch, specializing in organized crime, homicides and corruption.
Fortunately, I didn’t have to submit my exposes to underworld leaders for their pre-publ ... continue reading »
So, WND columnist Nat Hentoff thinks waterboarding of terrorist suspects in not consistent with American ideals and treaties ["Rule of law an endangered concept"]. In other words, we should not use such barbaric methods on those who gleefully blow up buses of pre-schoolers.
On this anniversary of the horrors of 9/11, perhaps Hentoff should ask those whose lives were shattered about waterboarding. Thusly: “Would waterboarding be OK if it yielded information that would have prevented the loss of those loved ones central to your life?” How many would say, “Oh, ... continue reading »
This has got to be the poorest excuse for a website on the face of the earth ["Claim: Obama hid 'gay' life to become president"]. The Newsweek article on “the first gay president” was not saying that president Obama is gay, and you know it!

You will lie your hearts out to smear Obama’s name. You are a disgrace to what is good and decent – and today, in 2012, there isn’t much. What is actually worse than that is people actually believe the lies ... continue reading »
I just read “Cop blows away dog for no good reason.” I have been a police officer for 25 years and am a dog owner. I am also a victim of a vicious dog bite. I do not know what happened during this event, but your coverage is heavily weighted against the officer.
Have you read the comments of the other readers? Do you care what they are saying?
Police in this country have always been public servants. They remain that to this day. There are examples of abuse; however most officers serve with distinction and would place their lives in danger to save other ... continue reading »
In response to “Cop blows away dog for no good reason.” – the same thing happened this past week in Spartanburg, S.C. The people had their dog on a chain and a “beware of dog” sign posted on a tree head high in clear view. The cop shot their pet because it growled at him.
Cops have put themselves above the law on things like this and need to be put on a leash themselves. Of course, no actions will be taken against the officer here in S.C., but in your case they are witnesses.
Please keep writing about this. Encourage people to stand up to ... continue reading »
I can’t believe it! I witnessed a crime a block from my mother’s house. I am appalled at the blatant violation of the law regarding the sale of an illegal substance. Lemonade is being sold on a corner one block away. Sold by CHILDREN!
